Wenona man killed in crash on Route 18

A 38-year-old Wenona man died from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash at 6:24 a.m. Thursday on Route 18 at Meridian Road at the Putnam-LaSalle county line, state police said.

The motorist, whose name was being withheld pending notification of next of kin, was driving a 2005 Nissan Altima that collided with a 2017 Ford F350 driven by James D. Toliver, 37, of Chillicothe, who was not injured, police said.

Police said a preliminary investigation showed the Altima was northbound on Meridian Road, and Toliver’s truck was eastbound on Route 18. The Altima entered the intersection, police said, and Toliver’s front end struck the driver’s side of the Altima. The crash remains under investigation.
